Reviews - What do customers think about Settlement Archaeology at Quirigua, Guatemala (University Museum Monograph)?
Comprehensive Jan 24, 2008
This book is a very nice comprehensive look at Maya settlement and household archaeology in general as well as a detailed report specifically on Quirigua. The accompanying CD-ROM was very helpful as it contained maps and drawings that helped me visualize what Ashmore was describing in the text.
